Former Grant Recipient’s “Happy and Gay”

We were very pleased to hear that past grant recipient Lorelei Pepi has completed her brilliantly revisionist animated short film, “Happy and Gay.” On the festival circuit, it has recently received the Best Animation Award at Les Gai CineMad: Madrid LGBT Film Fest, the Jury Award for Best Animation and Audience Award for Best Animation at the Atlanta Out on Film Festival, and the Jury Award for Best Short Film at the Image+Nation LGBT Cinema Festival, Montreal. Lorelei is presently a Creative Capital Awardee in the 2015 Moving Image and Visual Arts cycle.
